Waterline Breaks/Dirty Water

Dear Latrobe Municipal Authority (LMA) Customers:

The LMA is aware of recent dirty water throughout our system. We recognize the inconvenience this is causing our customers and are working to resolve these issues. Dirty water has resulted from a number of recent waterline breaks, tank painting projects that have required the LMA to draw water from different locations in our distribution system (flow changes) and pump station construction projects.

Please be advised that the LMA filtration plant is operated 24 hours/day, 7 days/week with staff on-site at all times. LMA staff conducts water tests once every four hours at the filtration plant and 30 times/month throughout the distribution system to ensure water is safe to drink. 

The LMA also has a limited flushing operation for specific areas experiencing dirty water. Due to the large number fire hydrants throughout our system, the availability of LMA employees to conduct flushing can be delayed. 

When customers experience dirty water, it is recommended to run cold water to help clear lines at your location. 

The LMA website ( will be updated as needed to communicate with our customers regarding waterline breaks and projects that could affect water quality, quantity and appearance.

The LMA also has begun using an emergency alert notification system to communicate with customers regarding certain emergencies and projects.  If you would like to be included in future alerts, please consider sending an updated phone number with your next bill.  The notification system only places calls related to system emergencies, alerts and projects.

Thank you.
